The measurement of unknown model to get the three dimensions of object configuration is by using the laser camera photo tracking. The three dimensions model became from solid drawing on the CATIA software. The CFX ANSYS computational fluid dynamics software is used on the 3D of Flying Boat remote control model full configuration. The rectangular and dihedral configurations of the model have Z forces value during acceleration on the water surface. The pressure distributions hydro planing have a good result also. The speeds on the simulation model are around (0 - 25) knots and Angle of Attack, α = 00. The downwash effect and vortex could be shown in the CFD results. To verify the simulation data analysis is uses the takeoff flight performance testing data during takeoff of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle “Alap alap” with the same Thrust per Weight ratio around 0.4, such as altitude height, airspeed, Z acceleration and pitch angle data. The hump drag of Flying Boat remote control model and the friction during takeoff of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle have been ignored.
